There are only 6 days left to see Across the Divide at the Visual Arts Center!
This unique group exhibition features 24 Chinese American artists and focuses on the shared cultural identity over differing geopolitical convictions. The artists are of various ages and come from different parts of China, and the works explore their personal cross-cultural perspectives in relationship to the changes that have been brought by China’s current social, economic, and cultural development. The Department of Art and Art History’s own associate professor in Studio Art, Beili Liu has a beautiful sculpture in the exhibition and is the exhibition’s faculty sponsor. On Tuesday, March 6th at 6:30 PM, Dr. Yun-Chiahn C. Sena, an assistant professor in the Department of Art and Art History who specializes in Chinese art and culture, will lead a round table discussion to explore the common thread among the Across the Divide artists as well as the history and direction of contemporary Chinese art today.
Don’t forget, Diana Al-Hadid’s Suspended After Image, Justin Boyd: Dubforms, (im)possibilties and New Prints 2011 are all closing on the 10th of March. Don’t miss your last chance to see the diverse and vibrant work in Across the Divide!
